Serious Seeds are a small firm, concentrated on the production of high-quality varieties of cannabis seeds.
Lab tests have shown that the Serious Seeds strains produce some of the strongest plants (highest in THC content) available on the market today, averaging between 18 - 22% THC.
Every batch of seeds is tested for germination rate and uniformity of the plants before releasing it. Every bag is numbered; keep the original package and the number in the highly unlikely event of a problem.
Why are there only five strains in the Serious line? To keep quality high, Serious Seeds only release a seed strain once it is stable and consistent. Strains have been improved through good selection; when a strain is improved, this is sold with the same name.
This easy to grow plant is the most popular. It is of medium height and produces good yields quite quickly. Extremely strong odour and smoke. Take extra care for odour control when growing near neighbours. The name was given not out of any idea of violence, but more in association with the ‘one hit wonder’ that the smoke is.
Quality without compromise makes AK suitable for commercial grows or home use. These plants have a short flowering period for a Sativa, producing compact, not too leafy buds that gleam with a coat of resin crystals.
Winning seven prizes in Cannabis competitions, including second prize for the Best Sativa in the 1999 High Times Cannabis Cup, which proves it is a favourite to smoke as well as to grow.
Bubble Gum is a medium tall, usually not too branchy (sometimes stretchy) plant, producing compact, crystal covered buds. Originally Bubble Gum was developed by growers in Indiana, USA and from there the genetics moved to New England and eventually Holland. lt took many generations to finally produce this stable Bubble Gum, with the characteristic, sweet smell (truly resembling a typical bubble gum taste) and euphoric high; the original trademarks of this famous strain. The only inbred strain (no F1 hybrid) in the Serious menu.
Winner of two awards in the High Times Cannabis Cup of 1994, a 2nd place in 1995 and again a 2nd prize in 1999, giving Bubble Gum a total of 4 awards from the judges.
Chronic, the most commercial variety, is a medium height, not too dense plant that is the perfect combination of good yield and excellent quality. Smokers that know and grow choose this plant for its combination of appearance and sweet smell. With its Indica background Chronic can produce up to 600 g/m2 without losing that connoisseur feeling. Grows a single huge central bud with few side branches. Do not top plants to encourage multiple big buds, as this strain does not respond well. Mild, sweet smell develops while flowering; take care to dry thoroughly after harvest (before packaging) to maintain this subtle fragrance. 3rd prize High Times Cannabis Cup 1994, improved in 2000.
Of all the Serious strains, this is the best choice for growers tired of losing quality when increasing yield.
Arguably the top sativa strain available today. With 90% sativa genetices, Kali Mist grows into a tall, classic Sativa plant with very few leaves. This strain produces dense clusters of full fluffy buds, with much higher yields than you would expect. The plant structure, as it has few leaves allows the light to pass all the way to lower branches, enabling the bottom buds to develop fully. When planted outside early in the year this plant can grow very tall. Expect spiraling flowers with a high resin content and a delightfully spicy scent.
Expert cannabis growers often chose Kali Mist for their own stash.
Kali Mist was improved in 2000 to produce bigger yields. In Spain it proved to be very mould resistent, even outside during bad weather. This strain has flavour and a subtle cerebral effect that gave it a Cannabis Cup first prize in 1995 (Hydro Cup) and again (with this new and improved version) in 2000 (Seed Company Sativa Cup). Without a doubt an excellent choice for connoisseur stash. Gives a very strong, clear and energizing high.
These cannabis seeds produce plants that are fantastic in both appearance, and effect. The most typically Indica strain, White Russian is a stable cross of AK-47 and White Widow (a prize winning Indica clone). Medium height, consistent plants and dense, very resinous flower tops (crystals appear after about 5 weeks of flowering). With such a strong Indica background, the plants smell quite strong during both their growth and flowering period. In an independent seed comparison in which over 150 different seed strains were grown out in a greenhouse, the White Russian came out as the strongest plant (22% THC, one of the strongest plants known at present).
Winner of the overall Cannabis Cup in 1996 and of the Cup for Best Bio Grass in 1997. The plants yield very powerful buds, coated with resin. Very strong, long lasting high, more cerebral than a knockout. Ideal medicinal plant.
